Kouhei Sugihara lives in a world of total isolation due to him being hard-of-hearing. However, when the loud and boisterous Taichi Sagawa comes into his life, Kouhei discovers that Taichi's voice alone shines as bright as the sun. Easily misunderstood by most people, Taichi is taken aback when Kouhei notices his good-natured personality. Taichi's valiant personality urges Kouhei to demand more for himself, pushing him into the lively world that he had always yearned to live in. Through this, Taichi helps Kouhei find a community of people who are willing to listen and understand, though they might have to repeat themselves more than once. Through the ups and downs of living in two very different worlds, Taichi and Kouhei find a connection that transcends all barriers and runs deeper than just a regular friendship.

Hidamari ga Kikoeru is a touching story about loneliness, self-respect, and finding a bond through the commonalities that we all share as people.

“Looking for a note taker”

Words as simple as these can easily impact someone's life. "I Hear the Sunspot" tells the story of two college students who meet by chance yet end up closely intertwined in each other’s lives. While doing so, the story explores themes of isolation, self-regard, happiness, and social anxiety.

The dynamic between the reserved, hard-of-hearing Kouhei and the lively and vibrant Taichi is endearing. Kouhei is easily misunderstood by most people so he finds comfort in Taichi, who is fond of Kouhei’s good-natured personality. While the presentation of many themes is subtle, the manga is realistic and easy to follow. The characters read more

I really loved this manga when it came out.

What really makes this story stand out is the attention to detail on disabilities and how each side interprets certain situations. Marketably, this is a boy's love story, but this first part is so subtle that you'd probably not be aware of it until the end. Instead, this is a story about living in a world of miscommunication and trying to find even ground where everybody can stand equally.

The first two or three chapters are so good. It really hits you emotionally and it makes you rethink how you've treated people, whether they have a disability or read more

Story: This is a pretty unique shonen ai manga, because of the inclusion of hard of hearing characters. You don't see those often in any manga. The pacing is good. Some people might find it a bit slow, but I like how you get to see the characters warming up to each other. :)

Art: Great! It's very nice. The people don't look disproportional and everyone looks fiiiine. :D

Character: Taichii (dark-haired MC) isn't all that unique. He's loud, straightforward, says and does what he wants, gets into fights, kind, etc. You can find characters like him in many other mangas, BUT the author did a great read more

This one was hard for me...emotionally.

While the French translation of the title - "Entends-tu le chant du soleil?" OR "Can you hear the song of the sun?" seems so much more elegant, the manga's real beauty lies in its ability to convey the warmth and beauty of loving another human in a simple yet impactful way without falling into traditional OR societal conventions.

It does it so well - that it kicks up that feeling in your gut reminding you of when you felt that very same yearning and "wanting to care" for someone - even if it's a feeling you didn't quite have a read more
